Midtown Mobile is known for its rich history and scenic drives. In fact, several of Mobile’s Historic Districts are located in midtown. This historic section of Mobile gets tons of traffic—between being a hub for those who live in either West Mobile or downtown for various errands and holding some of the more historical sites of Mobile—midtown properties sell fast and are renovated pretty quickly as well.
On that note, there’s a new development set to open in August we think you need to know about!
Located next to the historic Dew Drop Inn, The Lofts at Midtown are a new development consisting of about 20 residential units and 5 commercial spaces.
The opening of this development seems almost a miracle–after the COVID-19 Pandemic railroaded the project multiple times. In fact, the opening date for The Lofts at Midtown was pushed back a few months because of issues in the supply chain for builders.
Regardless of the issues, The Lofts at Midtown seem to be coming together swimmingly now. Two of the commercial spaces have been rented out as well, one to NOVA Espresso’s owners to open NOVA Market, which will be a little coffee shop/grocery store fusion. The other unit is going to be a Pure Barre exercise studio.
Developers are still looking to add storefronts to the remaining commercial spaces, so if you’ve got a small business ready to take off, now’s your time to shine! Check out this link for more information on commercial spaces in The Lofts at Midtown.
As far as residential spaces go, there’s still plenty of leases at The Lofts at Midtown up for grabs. They have one-bedroom, one-bathroom units starting at $950/month and two-bedroom, one-bathroom units that start at $1450/month. Every apartment has quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, and washer/dryers in-unit!
These mixed-use style buildings have been really successful in the midtown area! The Old Shell Lofts, located not too far from these new loft-style units, have been highly successful. Previously a school for performing and fine arts, the Old Shell Lofts were renovated and turned each classroom into a luxury apartment through the use of Historic Tax Credits, which breathe new life into historic buildings that would otherwise remain unused.
